P.V. Glob (1911–1985) was the Director General of Museums and Antiquities for the State of Denmark and Director of the National Museum in Copenhagen. Although his professional interest took him from Greenland to the Arabian Gulf, his most sustained study was of his native country. In addition to The Bog People,
Glob published numerous anthropological works including Denmark: An Archaeological History from the Stone Age to the Vikings
and Mound People: Danish Bronze-Age Man Preserved.
